I have suggested these before, but I want to say now that these are ones I would NOT recommend:

Ways to find the right pillow:

Instead, start your search for the best pillow by matching the pillow to your dominant sleep position: side, back, stomach, or combination.

Um, going to reference back to your comment about not doing stretches. I've had lower back pain for years, progressively getting worse. Finally started doing stretches daily, yeah, it's a PITA some days, but with regularity it has eased my pain tremendously. So, just a gentle nudge in that direction. 

Anyway, don't know the brand of pillows I have, but like using two thinnish pillows, I can fold and manipulate to what I need that night. I bought a memory foam pillow once, the kind of funky design where it's not a straight flat pillow. Was ready to throw it out the window on the second night, was not helpful at all.

Thank for posting that ... I had been thinking of a memory foam pillow for awhile but never got it.  Glad I didn't. (I know YMMV with pillows, but something for me to keep in mind).

I use two feather and down pillows on top of each other. I did use a latex orthopaedic pillow which I think would be good for a neck issue. I have a memory foam one but it doesn't breathe well so gets too hot. Feather and down seems to breath and mold to my head the best. Get a quality one. My ones cost usd40 for a pair on eBay but that was a very good deal. Look for Hungarian goose feather/down. They come in various ratios of feather/down with the higher down content being more expensive. An important factor is fill, how much feather and down is actually in the pillow. More the better. Look to pay $60 or more per pillow.  I can't remember the optimal ratio of feather to down. Cheap ones are like 90% feather, you want more down than that. All down might be too soft though.

So I tend to need extra leverage some nights to keep the acid from running up from my stomach (sorry to be graphic).  

Here is a link to one on Amazon, specifically used for acid reflux:

I don't have one (wish I did though), but they are supposed to very helpful for GERD (GI DR says at least).
